Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-05-21 11:10:38 UTC
I was trying to find if Fedora people were able to backport the fixes for bug 583522 in Fedora22 but I couldn't find it :(

At least I found that any version before 4.4.11 are vulnerable to, at least, that two CVEs I list in summary, hence, maybe it would be interesting to stabilize 4.4.11

And the kernels before 4.4.14 are affected by CVE-2016-4997. (

I'm using 4.4.14 for a week on working laptop. No issues found comparing with current stable 4.4.6. Are there any blockers for this security bug?
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-08-21 09:38:30 UTC
Well, there are many more security fixes since I reported this.. probably the best idea would be to stabilize 4.4.19 when it lands the tree
Comment 4 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2016-08-21 14:41:19 UTC
4.4.19 is in tree since yesterday. Regressions do happen, but very rarely at that stage of LTS, so I guess stabilising it is not unreasonable.
Comment 5 Mike Limansky 2016-09-23 15:31:32 UTC
I'm using 4.4.19 for a month on amd64. No issues comparing to 4.4.6 are observed.
